Regarding the cause of the exodus As stated by the emigrants he had conversed with and a to believed from his own experience and observation it was due to the entire absence of Security for life Liberty or property of the coloured people of the South. The life of a Nero is a the tender mercy of the lowest White Man in the neighbourhood where be May reside. As Rega i s their political Rig to he said it in to get a fair vote. They Are allowed to vote in borne local tic 5 but cheated in the count. He corroborated the statements of previous witnesses regarding the e lorts Whites to prevent the from leaving and said their practice was to threaten the lives of influential coloured men so As to prevent them and intimidate others from going. The condition of affairs is such wit Ness said that there is an entire Lack of Confidence by the Whites in the Blacks and vice versa. He thought the exodus would continue and increase in the future unless the White people of the South change their present Atti tude and give to the negro the same Protection and Enco argement that is afforded them in Kansas and other Northern states. The Rem Edy he said lies entirely in the bands of the White democracy.

The Todd county Butcher is in St. Rani in route to Stillwater for Story of he brutal Timony of Hla mistress wife of one of his victims. From the St. Pau daily Globe. Cell no. of the county jail had for a guest last night a Man convicted of perhaps the darkest crime that has Ever stained the Crimi Nal record of Minnesota. The villian s name is Michael Miede convicted As the principal to to the murder of Henry Kolway and a Man named Steinhuber which occurred on the 27th of last october near look Prairie Todd county Uinn Escota. The trial commenced on tuesday the 23d inst. Before judge Mckelvy at Long Prairie and concluded on thursday evening at 7 o clock the prisoner being convicted of murder in the first degree and sentenced to the Penitentiary at Stillwater at Bard labor for life. The convicted murderer arrived in by. Paul Over the St. Paul. Manitoba Railroad last evening. He was heavily ironed Aud in the custody of sheriff Bassett and Deputy sheriff Butler of Todd county. He was conveyed to the jail and lodged in cell no. 5, where he sat for the following pen picture As sketched by a reporter the convicted Felon is branded with the Mark of Cain in every feature and Lineament of his repulsive and hideously ugly Ibisi Onomy. From outward appearance it would be difficult to select a better subject for the rope of the Hangman. In physique he is thick set Short in stature with coarse hair and moustache Black As the Raven s Wing. The most striking feature of the Man however is a Low Broad forehead be Neath which Are almost concealed a pair of Coal Black eyes the glance of which combines Vul Pine cunning and the Sharpness of the weasel. When seen by the Globe reporter Miede was lying Down in the cell with arms and legs securely shackled. He stubbornly refused to Rise and has such a limited knowledge of eng Lish As to make anything like a conversation in native vernacular out of the question. The Globe linguist opened fire in German but on All Points concerning Bis connection with the tragedy he is entirely reticent. On other matters be is familiarly glib Bat evades conversation on the murder replying to All questions by protesting innocence. The murder for which Miede was convicted and for which his brother Black was lynched is one of the most bloody and cold i hearted affairs Ever recorded As having taken place in this state. The murder was the result of criminal passion resulting from the seduction and illicit Liaison by Miede with Kowny s wife. The parties were near and after seducing Kolway he persuaded her to leave her husband and cohabit with him is his mistress. The shameful affair became the theme of the neighbourhood and the utmost indignation was expressed at the action of the the people became of incensed at the affair that the House of the medea was burned by some unknown person which led to the Mur Der. A few nights after the fire the Miede Brothers visited Kohay s House and brained him and Steinhuber with an Are. The murder was prompted by revenge and the country became intensely excited at the enormity of the outrage. All the Circum stances pointed to the Miede Brothers As the fiendish perpetrators and Justice was not slow in asserting her claims. The brothels were Daly captured and charged with the crime. Clack John Miede a brother to Michael came into the meshes of the Law first and was made to feel the weight of retributive Justice at once. An indignation meeting was called and the citizens decided to administer summary Justice and without fur ther ado he was lynched. A few hours before the Lynching Black John confessed to a that he and Mike had done the killing. The latter was subsequently captured and would have suffered the same Fate As his brother had it not been for the precautionary measures taken by the sheriff. The trial lasted three Days and the proceed Ings were watched with the most absorbing in Terest and concluding with conviction and sentence for life As before stated. A principal witness at the trial was mrs. Kol Way wife of the murdered Man and former mistress of the prisoner of whose testimony the Todd county Argus of yesterday has the following Sophia Kolovat the wife of the murdered Inan a or took the Brand for the state.

Who assured them that his trading House was a permanent thing Ond he would give them cred it through the year the same so their old traders had. But after the indians had spent the Money they had received or. Leland moved away his remaining goods and his temporary trading Post has been closed Ever since. The Snake River band not fooled that Way be cause its leaders rightly concluded that the agent could come to them easier than they with their women and children All of whom have to be present at payments could go through pathless Woods and swamps to the locality pitched for the Leland game. Their Money they suppose has since been on Deposit at by. Pan and they arc curious to know who gains the interest on it. They were informed after the appointed payment time had passed that they might have their annuities by coining to White Earth 300 Miles away for them but that otherwise the Money would be sent Back to Washington. Probably had not Hayt. The last exposed scoundrel been turned out from the Indian Bureau they never would have received their Money. A delegation of these indians came to see the governor some months ago about the matter but the govern or could Only refer them to the Indian Bureau. If our informant s statements Are Correct it would seem that the government ought to make More definite regulations in behalf of these indians. But until Congress takes hold of the Indian system with an. Earnest purpose of thoroughly reforming it not Only these but All indians will remain strangely subject to the whims and fancies of Indian officials and the interests of traders and contractors though supposed to be protected by treaties and Laws and to be favored by the plans of the govern ment for improvement of their condition.
